I know very little about electronics and designs and I certainly don't want to get in the middle of any war here but would just like to add my experience with Stretchyman and his transmitters.

I have been using Stretchy's original xtal TX for 3 1/2 years.

Also I have had the 40 watt GAN TX for 1 1/2 years. Yes I have always powered up at 12v and then ramped up to 24v. Just seems to make sense.

I have an order in with Stretchyman for his new 100 Watt transmitter, hopefully that will happen soon.


I have countless hours on both transmitters and have had nothing but a positive experience with Stretchyman and his transmitters.
I will buy every design he comes up with because I know he stands behind his work. What more could you ask for.

There are several of his TXs on the air here in the US and I highly recommend them. They are easy to operate and sound fantastic!

I thought people should know the positive side also.

The SW200 is interesting. Seems like it would be OK for higher power also, as read in the 5th paragraph here:

https://www.mydigitalpublication.com/publication/?i=532050&article_id=3209662&view=articleBrowser&ver=html5#

I'm getting a little tired of having to pre-record and pre-process all of my audio. I may give this thing a try.
